Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution Exhibit coming to St. Petersburg, FL
 
Posted on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 - 01:30 PM


Bill Graham holds a special place in our hearts and we are thrilled to let you know that the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg is hosting the Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution exhibition from August 18, 2018 through February 10, 2019. A Gibson Les Paul owned by Duane Allman will be on display along with memorabilia, photographs, archival concert footage, historical and new video interviews, ephemera, and psychedelic art.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution is both a deeply personal reflection on Grahamís life and an exploration of how Graham helped transform rock music into the immersive, multi-dimensional, and highly lucrative phenomenon of rock theater that persists today. Treasured photographs and artifacts from Grahamís early life and career will be on loan from the Graham family, many on view to the public for the first time. Also for the first time ever, preparatory drawings and the original artwork of several iconic Fillmore concert posters will be on museum display, revealing the signature visual styles and creative process of poster artists Bonnie MacLean, Wes Wilson, David Singer, Greg Irons, and David Byrd.


This exhibition explores the extraordinary life of Bill Graham (1931- 1991), a renowned music promoter who helped launch and promote the careers of countless rock & roll artists. It also traces the indomitable spirit of a man brought to the United States as an eleven-year-old Jewish refugee fleeing the Nazis, fueling a lifelong passion and advocacy for social justice.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution opens to the public on August 18, 2018 and will be on display through February 10, 2019 at The Florida Holocaust Museum.

PEACH PICKS: CREAM OF THE CROP 2003: FOUR-DISC SET, OUT IN MAY, FEATURES
CURATED SELECTIONS FROM SIX SUMMER SHOWS

**Dedicated To The Memory Of Gregg Allman**

Fans of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame group THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND will be excited to hear Peach Picks: Cream Of The Crop 2003, a collection of the best performances culled from six shows in July and August 2003. Set for release May 16 via the bandís Peach Records (Orchard distribution), the collection includes 36 tracks recorded between July 25 and August 10, 2003 in Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Darien Center, NY, Hartford, Charlotte and Raleigh, with no song repeated.

The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND formed in 1969 and quickly became one of the most popular live bands in American rock music history, selling millions of records along the way. Hailed for their live improvisation and marathon performances, the group released the At Fillmore East album in 1971, and itís still hailed as one of the best live albums ever. The group played its last live performance October 28, 2014, at New Yorkís Beacon Theatre.

The 2003 iteration of the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND--founding members GREGG ALLMAN, JAIMOE and BUTCH TRUCKS plus WARREN HAYNES, MARC QUINONES, OTEIL BURBRIDGE and DEREK TRUCKS--would prove to be the longest-running line-up and most consistent in its live performances. The band had just released their first album in 10 years, the Grammy-nominated Hittiní The Note and were in top shape. Guest musicians on four Cream Of The Crop 2003 songs include Susan Tedeschi, Karl Denson and Branford Marsalis.

Oteil Invites You to Roots Rock Revival 2018

A MESSAGE FROM OTEIL BURBRIDGE TO THE ABB FAMILY

I want to invite you to Roots Rock Revival, the summer jam band camp founded by Butch Trucks and initiated with myself along with Luther & Cody Dickinson of The North Mississippi Allstars. Now in its 6th year, this unique five-day experience has grown beyond our wildest dreams.


The 2018 line up features an amazing team of host artists including: Jaimoe, Eric Krasno, Johnny Vidacovich, John Medeski, Grahame Lesh, Vaylor Trucks, Berry Duane Oakley, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Bird Horns, Junior Mack, Hash and Congo (Thievery Bass and Drum), and Brandon ďTazĒ Niederauer.


Each day offers a curriculum of workshops and seminars, an evening concert, three gourmet meals, and nightly open jams that go on and on. All this happens at the incredible Full Moon Resort nestled in the Catskill Forest Preserve, just a few miles from Woostock (New York).


You donít need to be an accomplished musician to benefit from the camp and all ages are welcome. There is a wide array of accommodations, from tents to brand new luxury Mountain View Cottages. I encourage anyone who wants to keep the flame that Butch lit burning, to come join the Roots family gathering. This yearís camp is from August 6th through 10th.
